New to the local public scene? This Kink 101 class gives you the basics on the San Francisco BDSM scene, and is perfect whether you're new to kink, new to the public scene, want to learn more about local BDSM play and education, even just want to know what the heck happens at a kink café. Join us for this quick orientation to the local kink scene and San Francisco's very own kink café. This session is perfect for folks who are making their first brave steps into the San Francisco kink scene. This class is also a perfect intro to etiquette and protocols if you're planning to get involved with local play parties and organizations.


Rae Luné has been active in the San Francisco public kink and burlesque for about ten years. In addition to their management role at Wicked Grounds, Rae has been a host and volunteer for several SF Bay Area play parties and events. When not working in kink, Rae is most likely to be found nurturing their love of all things cats and glitter.


Tickets: $20- $50 in advance, or $30 - $60 at the door. Please pay at the level you can comfortably afford.

Please note: This class is available for free to Wicked Grounds Patreon members who are subscribed at the VIP level ($30/month or higher). If you are a current Patreon member at that level, please reach out to to be put on the guest list. You may select one Kink 101 class per month for this benefit. Want to join? Go to to sign up!

We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.

The regular ticket is $30. This is what most people should pay.

The $20 ticket is offered for those for whom the $30 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $30 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $20.

Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $50 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it.

So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.

No one turned away for lack of funds.

If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.

All attendees will receive 10% off all books and gear purchased the same day!
